Support a New Bill to End Federal Marijuana Prohibition

    1. Sponsored by

      Drug Policy Alliance

For the first time since marijuana was effectively outlawed by the federal government in 1937, we have a chance to make marijuana legal at the federal level.

Rep. Barney Frank's new bill would end federal marijuana prohibition, making marijuana legal for adults and allowing states to decide their own marijuana laws, just like they can with alcohol and tobacco.

Make marijuana legalization a reality by writing your representative today. Ask him or her to co-sponsor the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011, get the legalization process started, and bring an end to the failed war on drugs.

      WHILE TABACCO AND ALCOHOL ARE LEGAL (AND HAVE NO MEDICAL BEINIFITS @ ALL) THERE IS NO REASON TO KEEP THE MARIJUANA PROHIBITION!

      Marijuana prohibition is unconstitutional and was started with racial prejudice, and is supported by pharmaceutical, chemical, alcohol, and oil industries.

      I would like to see DoJ money being used to catch real criminals. I was once told by a prison guard if he smelled cannabis he knew he was going to have an easy shift. Like others have stated alcohol often leads to bad choices and violence and yet how did it's prohibition turn out?
